WaPo's sampling error is +/-3%, even if you triple the sampling error Obama holds a clear edge over McCain. 3 times as many latinos right now would support Barack Obama before they would McCain.

Obama is winning the Latino vote by an insurmountable margin.

Nowhere in the link you posted does it say that. 20% is about what the Republican nominee gets as far as the Hispanic vote and the RCP poll of polls has McCain with about 35% of the Hispanic vote. That would be about a 75% increase in Hispanic voters supporting McCain over the support that President Bush got. 35% of the Hispanic vote going to McCain would be an irretreivable disaster for Obama.

Hmmm, this is what it says at the link you posted:


This Washington Post-ABC News poll was conducted by telephone June 12-15, 2008, among a random national sample of 1,125 adults, including additional interviews with randomly selected African Americans, for a total of 201 black respondents. The additional interviews (commonly referred to as an "oversample") were completed to ensure there were enough African American respondents for separate analysis; the group was not over-represented in the reported results from the full sample. The results from the full survey have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points. Sampling, data collection and tabulation by TNS of Horsham, Pa.

Hmm, no mention of any Latinos in the data....and I did look at it. So I have to wonder just where did you pull this from...not your ass because your head is in the way. Secondly, the only poll that counts is the one in November. Not this one from the WaPo or any other newspaper.
